Handwoven Cloth, Canvas & Paint
The hand-woven non-wearable garments as soft 'costumes' or regalia are sewn onto canvas on stretcher bars, and the background canvas, and sometimes the woven surfaces are painted.  This mix of contemporary acrylic painting is a new approach to woven artworks.

"HIDDEN CANYON DWELLERS:
BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO"
 

 

These petroglyphs are found in the caves and canyons of the Mexican southwest in Baja California Sur. They, too, remain an enigma, with no one knowing who and why. We can only admire their strength and ancient age. The painted symbols are copies of markings found in this area. Many figures overlap with each successive generation adding their own magic incantations to those of their ancestors. This does not destroy but simply preserves the spirit of the earlier ones, yet adds the new markings.

 

Again, the materials in the weave are cottons, rayons, wools, and a linen weft. The beads are bone pipes and beads with plastic pony beads. Glass bead gel was added to the acrylic paint to represent the sandstone walls.
